Wiglett is a 23’ 1990 Springer Waterbug with a V shaped hull for canal cruising.10HP Honda outboard surrounded by a metal cage with a bike rack installed over.Super easy to moor and manoeuvre. No transport costs to pay to get the boat into London (average costs is £1,500 to transport and launch a boat in London….Wiglett is already here so none of that to pay!)She is currently near Little Venice – ready to collect with cash or after cleared funds received.Boat safety cert just issued and valid until 21st Oct 2021.Engine:10HP Honda recently fully serviced at a cost of £800 – I’ll find the receipt and add it into the photosTiller for steering mounted off engine, throttle etc side mountedRear deck:Good sized rear deck area with 2 seating pads and side railsCage around outboard with exterior bike hanging rack.One under deck locker for engine petrol, one under deck locker for gas canister3 phase power connecterYale lock to main door, 2 steel bars connected to boat to secure the door with a padlockInternal:As you enter down the steps from the rear deck, the kitchen is on your left and the wetroom with portaloo and shower on the right.Straight through into the saloon/ bedroom.Can include the king size sofa bed in the sale if you want it (cost £450 from John Lewis)Lots of storage under back deckLots of storage under front deck2 large sets of drawer units, open cupboard for clothes hanging and shoesT and G lined below the gunwale, white painted wood aboveWood lined floorCurtains – some black out – includedKitchen;Hot and cold taps over sink – grey water flows through drain and out of side of boat2 gas ringed hob in stainless steel unitCounter top oven and grillFridge with freezer sectionDrawer under hob and open storage underneathCeiling hung shelf and cupholdersMorco water boiler (new and fitted Oct 2017)Saloon:Open plan area currently with a sofa that folds open to make a king size bed.

She’s got some nicks and cuts to her paintwork, and I’ve got a survey given to me from the previous owner that I’d be happy to send over to anyone who requests it.I’ve had this boat for 3 years and stayed in her with shoreline power, so I’ve not needed to set up her electrics to continuously cruise (ie to recharge the batteries when the engine is on and run through an invertor). If this is your plan, then there are ways to charge your house batteries – solar panels, alternator on the outboard or a small generator on the back deck – but I’m no expert on this and selling her as she is.Pictures, plants, mirrors and all personal items in the photos, aren’t included in the sale (unless specifically listed above).I’ve set a reserve of £6,500 and she’s on a 7 day listing. She’ll go to the highest bidder over the reserve when this auction ends. I think she’s worth £10k+ looking at other boats of her age and condition that have sold recently on ebay … and those were also all outside London so the transport and slip costs of £1,500 would be on top of that…. which obviously you won’t need to pay with Wiglett if you want to keep her in the big smoke. So, taking all that into account, I think even at £10k she’s a bargain for a London boater; but I need the space for my new boat which is why I’m selling her by auction – she’ll need to be collected by Friday June 15th latest, but is ready to go as soon as the auction ends.She was my first boat and now I’m a full convert to life on the water – I hope she will make someone very very happy!Please contact me if any questions!
